Hello from KelBelToo in NY

1. What styles VFFs do you currently have?  3 Pairs of KSO's and 1 pair of Sprints  Want? Something for the winter!

3. How long have you had your VFFs? 6 mos.
4. What do you enjoy doing in your VFFs? Running and everyday wear

    Very cool! Don't forget to keep us posted about your marathon prep - and the marathon itself, of course!

    Welcome to the boards!

  • Welcome and ignore the naked guy running through the forums, that's just Alan. ;)
  • Welcome to the forums -- what's the story behind your username?
  • Wow, 4 pairs in 6 months? You're going to going to have exponentially more pairs than everyone on this board in only a few short weeks at that rate. Hell, you could be THE reason for the shortage.

    Haha, welcome to the forum. Nice to have you.

    I've done better than that. My first purchase was just two weeks ago. All total I've ordered 4 pairs in the last two weeks, including two Treks.  Though one of the Treks will be returned or sold.
  • Thanks for the warm welcome!

    As for the marathon prep - it has been great.  I have logged a total of 360 miles on my 1st pair of KSO's.  The razor-siped outsole is pretty much warn away on most of the mid-foot.  My longest run in them to date has been 20 miles.  I wore my newest pair of "running" KSO's last night.  I forgot how sticky they are when new.  I have worn my only pair of sprints mostly every day since I got them and the outsole shows hardly any wear.

    I emailed Vibram and told then the perfect VFF for running in the Northeast would be the Flow combined with the more rugged outsole of the Men's Trek (no version for women!)...someday

    As for my user name - it's a combination of my first name (Kelley) and a nickname (Kelley Bell) that I tried to use on another site and every variation seemed to be alrady taken, so I came up with KelBelToo - know I just have to remember it!!
  • I always like hearing how people arrive at certain forum names.  Language and wordplay fascinates me :)
  • Just want to say Hello as being in NY as well.  I just have ONE pair of the KSO's which I got this past May.  I've since destroyed them and in need of a new pair.  Anyone in the Westchester area know of where I can go locally to grab either new KSO's or a pair of the Trek's! 

    Thanks!  Love the shoes and really push all of my clients to get them.  They are not only fun, but help with a multitude of issues!

    Take care,

    Greg
